I have taken in a 30 year old man who is mentally disabled he just got approved for Social Security and I would like to become his custodial parent. will this be hard for me to do?
A 30 year old man does not have a custodial parent. Is he competent? I am assuming he is because he made the choice to live with you? Do you want adopt him and become his parent? Does he want to be adopted? Do you want to marry him? Does he want to marry you? Is he incompetent? Do you want to be his guardian? You don't have priority for that if you are not related. Do you want to get his monthly money, be his representative payee? Can you and he set that up with social security? Good luck.See question
I'm the one that resided with my mother. I paid the mortgage. Bills in house are under my name. She left no will. I filed for homestead since none live there. My brothers and sisters filed this petition
I agree with Attorney Ainbinder. I am also sorry for your loss. If your other died without a will the house passes to ALL of her children. Talk to a lawyer about your options.See question
We live in Florida and still haven't even established paternity yet, and my son's father is in jail awaiting his sentence. He's violated the injunction for domestic violence twice now and is awaiting trial. Our son is less than a year old and hasn...
If you were never married and paternity has not been established he has no rights. There is case law pertaining to termination of rights if a parent is incarcerated. It goes to how long the parent is incarcerated and the parent's ability to actively participate in a child's life. As of right now you have all the rights. You can move away. I once had a mother in a a case where she was divorcing her incarcerated husband where the judge ruled the child had to be brought to the jail weekly, because the child was young and the incarceration was not long. That way the child could know and see her father and be ready to participate in his life once he got out of jail. I think you are in the best position you could be in just the way you are. (Know what happened to the child who went to visit her Dad in jail weekly. A couple years later he gave up his rights so her step-father could adopt her.)See question

No, you do not. There are lawyers currently representing men in your position trying to get you rights. I am not one of those lawyers.See question
Im currently going threw a probate estate case with my fiancee mother and I looked up the case information and it says 05/26/2017 Inventory 05/26/2017 Notice confidential information within court filing approved
Estate inventories are confidential pursuant to Florida Statute §733.604(1). When they are filed an attorney is obligated to file a notice of filing confidential information. They are not capable of being viewed on line or by the general public You must be a party in interest, such as a beneficiary or have a court order permitting you to view it. If you are a beneficiary a copy of the inventory should have been sent to you by mail in a manner that produced a return receipt.See question
My mom passed away 2 days ago, her brother and his wife had been living with my mom. I fear they had been stealing her valuables ect.
You need to hire a probate attorney to open an estate. Then you need to hire an attorney to do an unlawful detainer action, which is just like an eviction, except there is no landlord-tenant relationship. The person in the house is an invited guest who is no longer welcome. I am sorry for your loss.See question
My grandfather died in 2015, his Will went through probate, leaving his Homestead property to his son who had a living trust and probate was closed 11/2016. He listed in his Will his homestead but my question is...does a property that he is part o...
It depends on the manner in which the property was titled. If your grandfather owned it with others as joint tenants then it became theirs upon his passing. You should pay a lawyer to look at the deed for you.See question
I agree with Attorney Petz, except many attorneys in South Florida do regularly go in front of judges because doing everything by mail or computer can be so slow.See question
My ex-boyfriend of 20 years recently passed away and he left his pension to me and I am required to submit a death certificate to his union in order to receive my money. His family has always hated me and they are not happy about this. They are no...
You need to get a notarized letter signed by the union stating your ex boyfriend, HIS NAME, left you, YOUR NAME as a death beneficiary on his pension and they require a death certificate showing the cause of death to give you the benefit. Take the notarized letter to your nearest Florida Department of Health Vital Statistics office and they will sell you a long form death certificate.See question
My Mother has just passed. My Father's health is not good. My siblings and I stand to inherit an attractive sum of money when their estate is settled. My brother's marriage is on shaky ground. We're concerned that once the money is inherited, ...
I practice both estate planning and family law. Neither of the solutions you present will work. A post-nuptial agreement for your brother would work. There are other things that could work for your brother too, such as keeping the inheritance separate and not using the money or the interet/dividends from it for marital purposes. Your brother is the pilot in this situation. He should see a lawyer.See question
